They picked .... The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
My Reaction --- YES.
Why This One? ---
The entire book is like this.
Oh my goodness, I had the funnest time reading the entire Hitchhiker's Guide series, and if you take my advice, you should read it in small increments because the entire novel is just side-splitting hilarious IF you manage to get the jokes.
Goodreads obviously has a good sense of humor to make this one number one, and I wholeheartedly recommend that everybody read it. Young, old, boy, girl, gay, straight - it doesn't matter - Douglas Adams has something for everyone.
